Sabah Primates

18 to 21 Dec 2007 - Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Labuk Bay, Sepilok - (Malaysia)



Some retrospective notes - made in 2018!

Meeting Lisa Wong, via her sister, after Air Asia debacle. Lisa was in Kota Kinabalu, and from Bridge Church.

Staying at the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary - with a friendly otter who spent much of the night in our room.

Sandakan war camp sights.

Orangutan Sanctuary.

This friendly otter came for a walk with us when we went to the proboscis monkey feeding platforms. He walked with us for about 1-2 km and then back. It is amazing how an animal like this can be so domesticated. He did stop for a dip in almost every puddle we passed!

By the way, that is me (Richard) with an employee from the reserve - that is not Jo on the right!
